Previously called “The Memorial Day Murph,” this challenge is a now annual event. Here’s a little more info about it.
This amazing event will take place throughout the United States on May 25, 2015. Formerly known as ‘Memorial Day Murph’, The Murph Challenge is an extended version of the Memorial Day tradition that so many supporters have been taking part in for the last several years.
In 2014, Forged® raised over $250,000 with The Murph Challenge for the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation (501c3). With such overwhelming success, the Foundation was able to create and award three new scholarships out of the thirteen that are now presented on an annual basis. – from http://themurphchallenge.com/about-the-event/
So, what’s the workout?
You can do this on your own, with a friend or even look to see when your local CrossFit box is getting it done. If you want to make it official, register for the event at https://themurphchallenge.com/register/ where you will choose a t-shirt size for participation and your money goes right back into the The LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
If the vest is too much, scale this down. But, as an honor to the fallen, try your best to get it done as is.
Thank you to those that sacrificed everything to fight for this country and gave your life so we could live a free one.
